Stable and reliable fridge, never misses a beat

Very consistent and reliable.
Very easy to open and close.
It always looks fresh and bright inside (the lighting must be quite good).
One of the drawers inside can be split which is great for storing bigger items like a Christmas ham etc Show details

Update: there was a flaw with the main door. Mitsubishi AU & it's local agent were excellent. After an attempt at repair that failed the fridge was replaced.

Prefer another brand

After purchasing found out fridge does not have light in freezer which was very disappointing considering our old Mitsubishi fridge had one.Door slams shut each time you use it. Seals are good. Vegetable crisper draw gets jammed. Seems very plastics. Positives are it is very quiet when operating and elegant stainless steel design. Okay for small family or couple. Not good value for money

The worst fridge ever

This fridge was purchased 16 months ago.

It’s been repaired twice already, wait for the repair man once again. The fridge does not get cold enough. My food spoils , I am throwing milk out after 2 days, my cheese goes mouldy, my fruit and veg spoils.

I am over it , this is the worst fridge I have ever had.

Best fridge I've owned yet!

Love the room in freezer and fridge. We are a family of 7 and it suits us perfect. The temperature control is great, we only have the fridge half way so I'd hate to see how cold it gets on full ball. When you first turn it on it's loud but once it's cooled and settled it's quiet as.

An average fridge, good for its price

With 500 litre in volume, the fridge can keep some 2-3 days food that you don't have to go too often to supermarkets.

The chill room that keep fresh meat has a gap between the door and the bottom, so if you want to keep stuffs for more than 2 days, you have to set the cooling knob to the lowest, otherwise you end up to have them disposed of.

In general it serves me well without trouble.

Overall great , well made product

Decent large plain fridge with minimal flashy bits . Service from Mitsubishi when found cracked shelf first rate, decent large space in both fridge and freezer. Great manual ice cube maker. Only negative sometimes a little noisy. I would have no problem recommending this unit, originally bought through Harvey Norman,

Very Good Fridge..Only design could be improved a bit

I am using it for more than a month ..No Issue till now..Working perfrectly ... Just the design could be improved a little bit. Except that didn't find any other issue..Few people reported noise or vegetable tray freezing..We didn't find the noise that much to get our attention...and vegetable tray is completely fine

Good Fridge, Strange Noise

I have done an extensive research on what to buy and it concluded to this fridge. It's a really good fridge with perfect cooling and freezing capacity and decent size but it makes a strange 'moaning' noise after couple of minutes of compressor running. Technician came and told me that it's the noise of gas traveling through the pipes and all of them is making this noise. It's pretty loud and annoying and got me really disappointed on my purchase.

Good fridge with annoying 'moaning' noise.
